Make San Francisco a No-Kill City TUESDAY NIGHT! »
We need people to show up to the Animal Welfare Commission meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 16 at 5:30 p.m. in room 408 of San Francisco City Hall. Find City Hall at 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, right off the Civic Center Bart/Muni station!
Adoptable animals are being killed in SF shelters, and if you’d like to express your opinion about making SF a no-kill city, PLEASE COME! The fact is thousands of adoptable animals are put down every year because they fail a ridiculously hard temperament test, or have minor health problems, or are too old, or are a breed considered “violent” and “dangerous.” You know, racism.
Here’s exactly what they’ll be discussing:
5. Unfinished Business
A) The Commission will discuss and take possible action to table indefinitely the issue of whether or not San Francisco should mandate that all city shelters not euthanize any adoptable animal or any animal that would be adoptable after behavioral or medical intervention. The Commission has discussed various aspects of this issue over the course of the past two years. In May 2010, the Commission said it would revisit the issue in three months, and this agenda item fulfills that commitment. [Discussion/Action Item] [Commissioner Brooks]
San Francisco does an admirable job of re-homing thousands of homeless animals each year, far better than most cities, but we do have the resources, the rescue groups, and the ability to make that number even higher. The more pressure we put on the city to make this happen, the more likely it will happen. It’ll take less than an hour of your time and has the potential to help thousands and thousands of animals. Plus, you get to see our government! at! work! And usually a fair amount of crazy people, too. You know you love it.
See you there!
Who Wants to Demo Vegan Cookie Dough? FOR MONEY. »
It’s your wildest piggy dreams come true. Oh hell yeah.
Here’s what the job entails: going to grocery stores in the SF Bay Area with a shit ton of the redonkulous Eat Pastry vegan cookie dough and demoing the shit out of it. It would be preferable if you had your own toaster oven, some baking know-how, and the ability to bake on site. It’s pre-made cookie dough so if you can’t do that, you should probably just jump off a building. If you’re interested, email the delightful ladies of Eat Pastry and they’ll fill you in on all the info. So basically, you are paid to demo an amazing vegan product and spread vegan food love and smell like cookies, which is natural aphrodisiac. Just ask that guy up there.
In return, all I ask of you is your first born, a gold bar, and a lifetime worth of foot rubs. Don’t worry, I’ll cover the bunions with band-aids!
